Snapshots – Underway Is The Only Way

Last week we got some photos from Jianna Lucia, who along with Maria Finna curated and organised the Underway Is The Only Way group exhibition at the Surf’n’ink exhibition on the Gold Coast.

The show itself went down really well and it was busy throughout the convention. Here’s a great selection of pics from the show, the convention, and the artwork that was on display – total quality!

Snapshots – 3 Monkeys Bar – Prahran

Over the Xmas break, some of the artists that paint with the street art project we’ve been sponsoring,  ReVurt, got together to paint the newly minted 3 Monkeys bar on Chapel Street in Prahran.  Rad11, Max Well, Heesco, Pierre Lloga, Jack Douglas, ExRobot and Facter painted both the interior and outside courtyard of the bar, and had a pretty fun day of it! With so many different styles between all of the artists, it was great to see the collaboration all come together at the end of the day, and thanks to the 3 Monkeys crew!

Check out some of the photos below.


If you have any photos from exhibitions, paintups, studios or other projects, please feel free to send them to us for our Snapshots section.

Exhibition – Underway Is The Only Way – Gold Coast

What better way to start off the New Year than with a massive bulkload of great artists from across Australia, all wrapped up neatly in a sunny locale, surrounded by some of the best Australian and international tattoo artists?

Well, that’s what Surf’n’Ink promises and the accompanying exhibition, Underway is the Only Way, curated by Jianna Lucia and Maria Fina, is one of the first big group shows of the year – and it looks pretty damn cool.

"Park yourself in the urban environment of the Gold Coast, surround yourself with bright coloured exotic fish, coral reef sand beaches dotted with calypso coconut palm trees – then mix this with grass huts plastered with graffiti, and mermaids covered with tattoos and you have the perfect location for the Underway Is The Only Way art exhibition.

As a part of Surf’n’Ink Tattoo Convention on the Gold Coast, Underway is the Only Way is an art exhibition which will be showcasing artworks inspired from a range of grungy urban underbelly arts scenes spanning from the tattoo parlour, to grimey alley way street art, through to prestigious design, homebound Illustration, crazy paintings and rather fine art."

It’s summer, biatches, and you know there aint nothing better that tatts, surf, ink and great art (we’d throw in a few beers there just for good measure) -  if you’re in the area, head down and check it all out.

Exhibition – Angels See In Sepia – Fletcher Andersen – Melbourne

There isn’t much to say that hasn’t already been said on the subject of the man and his plan! Fletcher Andersen (Facter), Founder, Editor, and Director of, well, here, Invurt.com, dude behind the curtain on so many of its artistic off-shoots, and our (the Invurt crews) favourite ‘boss man’ artist is bringing us something really special this October … his second solo show, Angels See In Sepia.
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.’ Arthur C Clake
“Based on the thematic muse of Wim Wenders seminal movie Der Himmel über Berlin (”Wings Of Desire”), Fletcher Andersen brings his second solo show, Angels See In Sepia, to Melbourne’s Rancho Notorious Gallery.

Having produced a unique collection of portraiture, Fletcher delves into a combination of influences that have driven his creative passions for over twenty years – science fiction, arthouse films, street art and technology. Combining an inimitable illustrative style with visages of natural beauty, the images within Angels See In Sepia depict returned angels of the Singularity, and their restoration to mortality after having relinquished their transhuman, digital heaven. From a universe of plenty, to a world of raw, unedited emotion, they are freed from the “shackles of immortality” to face a long forgotten "natural” world; one far removed from of their solipsistic experiences.

As the culmination of years of exploring these themes within his writing and art, the works within Angels See In Sepia are an experiment in the combination of hand drawn, illustrated imagery, and digital realism. The results of this process is a unique, mixed media collection of works that attempts to bridge the past, present and future of both art, as well our technologically evolving humanity."

The crew here at Invurt are really proud of our ‘art father’. We support Fletch as to he strives to continuously produce his art, incredibly, amongst all the stuff he does both here on the website, as well as on the many projects he has been working on, and we hope you will to. Word is, that there will also be some special guests doing some collaborative pieces with him for the show, bonus!

So come celebrate all things Angelic, all things Sepia, all things Spring time, and, also importantly, hot chicks! Now that’s what I’m talkin about, be there!

Fletcher Andersen (Facter) .. with special guest remixes from Nicole Tattersall, Heesco, Jack Douglas, E.L.K, Pierre Lloga, Jianna Lucia, ExRobot, Mishke, Ed Bechervaise, Conrad Bizjak and Phoenix.

Crush City in Brissy have been running their End2End competition, and so much great shit has been coming out from it.

"We dropped 20 of Brissy’s most active writers names into a hat, drew one out and armed them with 4 colours to display their style in it’s simplest form. No effects and no fancy business.. We let them start it off then pass it on to the next writer…

The rules are:

• Writers may only use BLACK, CHROME, WHITE & ONE OTHER COLOUR
• Writers must nominate the next artist and make sure they rock up to contest… Punishable by methods we cannot disclose publically.
• Writers must keep it fresh!
